While having its origins in classical Indian dance theory, this usually refers to nine modes of physical manifestation for a deity, each of which expresses a different feeling or emotion; namely, 1) charming (sgegs pa), 2) heroic (dpa ba), 3) unpleasant (mi sdug pa), 4) wild (rgod), 5) savage (drag shul), 6) terrifying ('jigs su rung), 7) compassionate (snying rje), 8) awe-inspiring (rngam) and 9) peaceful (zhi ba). "Sgeg pa dpa' ba mi sdug pa, rgod dang drug shul 'jigs su rung, snying rje rngam dang zhi ba'o". See gar dgu'i nyams. [Erick Tsiknopoulos]
